Following the cortisol level tests carried out by the UCI on all the riders competing in the 2015 Tour de France, MPCC has received notice of the anonymous results of its 14 team members starting the race, on Friday afternoon.


Its results having shown an abnormally low cortisol level, Team Astana has immediately reported Roger Legeay, President of MPCC, the identity of the rider concerned (Lars Boom).


According to article 9 of MPCC regulation, in case of abnormally low cortisol levels, competition will resume after an additional 8-day rest minimum, and back-to-normal cortisol levels.


MPCC would like to remind that cortisol level tests are carried out within the framework of health, not antidoping.
